Dearth of villains in Tamil cinema

Tamil films since yesteryear is known for some prominent actors making their mark as baddies on screen. The likes of P S Veerappa, Nambiar, S A  Ashokan, M R Radha, Sathyaraj, Raghuvaran and Prakashraj to name a few made a mark for themselves.

But sadly today, there is an absolute dearth of villains in Tamil cinema. Filmmakers are compelled to make an import from either Bollywood or Telugu filmdom for such roles. The like of Vidyut Jamwal, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mukesh Tiwari are some classic examples.

Says trade analysts, ‘ Today everyone wants to become a hero. In most cases, if the role of a villain is powerful, the heroes themselves want to do it . However the legacy of powerful villains is sadly lost here’.
